Actress Busy Philipps has an impressive Instagram game every day, but Friday stood out, thanks to a photo she shared of her 9-year-old daughter, Birdie, dressed up as … Busy.

The Vice Principals actress, who also shares daughter Cricket, 4, with husband Marc Silverstein, had an appropriate reaction to the funny look: “I Am Dead.”


Birdie got her costume — which she presumably wore for Halloween — right in so many ways. Of course, she almost certainly had some inside help from her mom (and her mom’s closet). She’s 9, after all.

Let’s break down exactly how Birdie nailed it.

The coffee

This is the coffee mug that Busy uses to get her day started, as evidenced in this snapshot she shared of what she looks like “every single morning.” (Birdie’s cute dress, shoes, sunglasses, and earrings are straight from the source too.)


Philipps also just really loves (needs) her coffee, like a lot of us.

The too-cool-for-school vibe


Birdie perfectly captured her mom’s “whatever” attitude with her stance and the tilt of her head. Maybe she’s been watching her mom’s performance in Freaks and Geeks?

The fact that she’s taking a selfie

Philipps is all about snapping pics of Birdie and Cricket, as well as her close friend Michelle Williams, and is often holding her phone in the shots. But a lot of her photos are just her and some serious personality.




Philipps later noted in her Instagram story that Birdie insisted she go to her daughter’s school Halloween carnival in a similar ensemble. They should really get a reality show.
